Pitt Hosting Dual-Sport Florida Athlete for Official Visit This Month

It’s been a quick turnaround for Madrid Tucker since receiving an offer from Pitt a week and a half ago.

Tucker — a 6-foot, 160-pound athlete from Fort Myers in Fort Myers, Fla. — received an offer from the Pitt coaching staff just last month, and just under two weeks later, he’s scheduled his first official visit.

He announced on X (formerly known as Twitter) that he will take an official visit to Pittsburgh from June 6-8.

“Locked in! See you next week,” Tucker wrote on X.

Tucker holds offers from Appalachian State, Arkansas State, FAU, FIU, Furman, Pitt, Richmond, Toledo, UCF, UMass, USF and Western Michigan, with interest from Florida, Florida State and Miami.

Pitt jumped into the fray for Tucker on May 20, with Kade Bell extending an official offer over the phone, but Pat Narduzzi and Cory Sanders have been involved in the process.

He’s a talented recruit, capable of playing on both sides of the football and isn’t limited to just football.

Tucker carried the ball 26 times for 120 yards and five touchdowns, serving as a threat in the short field, but he thrived as a deep-ball threat as a junior at Fort Myers. He hauled in 33 receptions for 722 yards (21.9 yards per reception) and 12 touchdowns.

He added 27 tackles (15 solo), an interception and a fumble recovery defensively and 265 yards of returns.

He’s also a regarded baseball prospect, holding a 9.0 rating on Perfect Game, which signifies a potential top-10-round pick and/or highest-level college prospect. He’s a shortstop on the diamond, with a plus arm.

Tucker isn’t rated by any of the major recruiting services (247Sports, Rivals or On3), but after he picked up his first Power Four offer from Pitt, his process will likely pick up in the coming weeks and months.

It’s still a recent relationship between Tucker and Pitt, considering the offer arrived just under two weeks ago. Still, there’s no better way to build a relationship than an official visit. If the Panthers want to lock Tucker down, they will likely be able to do so during his visit. So, it bears watching.

Pitt holds six commitments in the class of 2025:

Four-star cornerback Elijah Dotson (Detroit, Mich.), offensive lineman Shep Turk (Jefferson Hills, Pa.), three-star wide receiver Tony Kinsler (Port Orange, Fla.), three-star wide receiver Bryce Yates (Chesterfield, Va.), three-star defensive lineman Trevor Sommers (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) and three-star quarterback Mason Heintschel (Oregon, Ohio).
